Legendary actor Morgan Freeman has loaned out his voice for many ad campaigns and commercials, but not to the conservatives in Wisconsin! Who thought that an ad the produced needed to have his likeness to bring their point home.
According to TMZ.com:
The ad — paid for a group called “Citizens for a Strong America” — blasts Democrat Shelly Moore in the race leading up to the Wisconsin Senate recall elections … and if you close your eyes, it almost sounds like a scene from “Shawshank Redemption.”
But Morgan’s rep tells us, it ain’t the actor’s voice — “A political ad running in Wisconsin by a conservative group narrated by someone trying to sound like Morgan Freeman was not narrated by Mr. Freeman. Morgan Freeman did NOT narrate that ad.”
I wonder if Morgan can take any legal action against the group and get paid from what they are doing? But I’m pretty sure he has a lawyer or two looking into that right now.
